i agree with you that Bhimbetka caves are truly archeological treasures. I would just like to add that bhimbetka caves are an invaluable chronicle in the history of man. Bhimbetka is always referred whenever Indian rock art is alluded to. I have read that V.S.Wakankar discovered the caves of Bhimbetka. It derives its name from the early epic Mahabharata on the name of second Pandava, Bhima.

Bhimbetka, densely covered by forest, surrounded by the northern fringe of the Vindhyan ranges, situated to the south of Bhopal has a lot to offer to uncover the history. Over these caves the Stone Age artists were expressive enough to paint their optimisms and anxieties, their tears and fears, their happiness and gloominess which still enthrall us.The paintings on the cave walls are done mostly in red and white colour. However occasional use of the colour green is also noticed. The drawings and paintings can be classified under seven different periods: Period I also named as the Upper Paleolithic age, Period II or the Mesolithic age, Period III also termed as the Chaleolithic, Period IV & V which depicts the Early History and finally the Period VI & VII depicting the Medieval history

Bhimbetka is certainly an invaluable chronicle in the history of man. the paintings of the caves unfold the facts..buried long ago. the themes of the paintings are taken from everyday events of eons ago, the scenes usually depict hunting, dancing, music, horse and elephant riders, animals fighting, honey collection, decoration of bodies, disguises, masking and household scenes. Animals such as bisons, tigers, lions, wild boar, elephants, antelopes, dogs, lizards, crocodiles etc. have been depicted in some caves.
